    Was there any kind of error while upgrading the linux kernel?

    Did u see and note the notifications that the kernel gave when it was being installed?

    Normally, redhat provides an option where, u can keep the old kernel in your system and also install the new kernel and work with them.

    The error message
    "Kernel panic - not syncing : vfs:unable to mount root fs on unknown -block (0,0)"

    may indicate, that, it is not able to find the device or the "/" filesystem on the disk.

    Using your bootable disk or the Bootable CD of RH9, check the command "mount" at the terminal and find where are the devices actually mapped. May be that wud help me to tell u further what is supposed to be done.
